1977-11-06 (Broome County, Binghampton) -- they do a wall of music that sounds like they are marching full-force through a brick wall before the final verse.-- keep listening after "Wharf Rat" and check out how they drop into the "Saint Stephen reprise" and of all insane suggestions listen to "Truckin'" -- insane jam including Jerry's solo's is an understatement...
...and if you want to read a unique interpretation go to the following link and see the post #51 at the bottom:

have to agree that it is 1977/11/6 (Broome County Arena, Binghamton, NY). unbelievably emotional and the intense piano refrain that runs throughout the jam gives me chills every time

The best Wharf Rat in my opinion is by far 6-20-83 Merriweather Post Pavillion, MD. Storm and pouring rain at an outside amphitheater. You hear the lighting strike in the middle of the song and the crowd goes wild, right before the band sings "I'll get up and FLY AWAY". Bobby loses his mind. Too bad a great recording of this show doesn't exist...

It can be found right here on the archive: http://www.archive.org/details/gd83-06-20.fob-senn.sws.11931.sbeok.shnf

Incidentally, this segues into my favorite Sugar Magnolia of all time. They play it differently and you can tell how fired up they were. Listen closely to a taper yelling "whooo" every few moments when the jam really picks up. Bobby rambling on about aboringes... classic. Enjoy.
